Very cute - this puppy has the look of an older dog. I have never heard of this breed. They are not AKC registered, are they? Looks like Border Collie colors with a Pharoah Hound's ears and smaller body.

Wow, what familiar faces I see here! :)
Karelian bear dog is an old Finnish breed, but I guess it's pretty rare outside our borders. As puppies they really do look like border collies! In fact, when my border collie was a puppy, I got a lot of questions like "is it a Karelian bear dog?" :)
It's a working breed, very strong-natured (I guess it can be guessed by the fact that they don't hesitate to harrass a bear) and needs a skillful owner in order to fully show all their great qualities.
But they seem to be very photogenic also! :)

she has a little heart shape on her head ^_^

What a cute little puppy! I love the last picture where she is peeking out from under the blanekts.

Remy is a beauty! And you can see the intelligence in her expressions - clearly a thinking girl! Her markings are beautiful, and I love those ears!! Thanks for sharing - this is the first time I've seen this breed. She looks like a champion to me!

This dog is exquisite. I've never seen this breed. I love his little heart shape on his forehead!!
Feb 15, 2007 Teddy Warbucks
What a sweetie!

And she learned the hand signals for the obedience commands already? I'm very jealous. Our dog can't do any of the hand signals.

Okay, that was bad. Sorry. But she is adorable! Thanks for sharing her with us!
Feb 15, 2007 LabMom
Both Remy and her big brother are absolutely gorgeous! That picture of her covering her nose with her paw is to die for! The markings on her face are unique and beautiful. Lucky Mom! They remind me a small bit of akitas.

What a beauty!
Feb 15, 2007 Yourmomsage
I guess she is brave--look at her challenging her big brother! Very cute--I love the peek-a-boo poses!
Feb 15, 2007 Terry C
Would you just LOOK at that FACE?????

Who could resist her?
Feb 15, 2007 snuggles19973
What a beauty and her brother as well. I have never heard of that breed but believe me they are beautiful dogs. She is sweet looking so I give lots of biscuits and Huggs and kisses as well.
Feb 15, 2007 dkritter
What a beautiful puppy! I love that heart shaped marking on her head, I hope she doesn't grow out of it! 11 biscuits for Remy!

Remy is beautiful, and her personality shines. I hope she wins big for you.
Feb 15, 2007 Egwene80
what a wonderful, expressive face!! an all-time great puppy!! thank you so much for sharing!
Feb 15, 2007 Blade
Karelian Bear Dogs are not eligible to compete in AKC events however they are able to be registered in their Foundation Stock Service. She's gorgeous, do you think you can make it to Crufts with her? Lots of love and luck from a fellow dog show person on the other side of the world!
Feb 15, 2007 soshyviolet
OMG sooooo cute! Never heard of the breed, but it is GORGEOUS - looks almost like an akita/border collie cross! Maybe I need one of those :)
Feb 15, 2007 BrightRedScream
Wow, what a beautiful dog!
I've heard of them, but have never seen what they look like.
Feb 15, 2007 beardogger
I have owned KB's longer than anyone in the USA at this point I believe - for thirty six years - and they are truly exceptional in many regards. Beautiful pictures of beautiful dogs - thanks for sharing. Where are these dogs located?
Feb 15, 2007 adew2476
What a Camera HAM this one is!!!!!! too cute! :)
Feb 15, 2007 explorerbeardogs
Adorable!!! She is hands down beautiful pup! KBD's are a unique breed that steal our hearts, and make us smile!
Feb 15, 2007 kawauso
awww, that tail is so adorable!
Feb 15, 2007 txnewswoman
I'm astonished. In pictures No. 1 and 9, she looks enough like my dog to be a sister, but she isn't even the same breed (Kudzu is a petit "Taco terrier" of some sort). What a hoot. She's a doll.
Feb 15, 2007 dogsrule
OHMYGOSH!

I'm have a severe cute attack!
What a gorgeous dogs! The pup! I'm in LOVE!

11 biscuits for you!
Feb 15, 2007 DoggieCaregiver
Remy is beatiful. I have never heard of this breed before but I will definately keep my eyes open from now on. She is quite an amazing puppy. Thank you for sharing your information about the breed and the pictures with us.
Feb 15, 2007 Loizhanne

WOW Remy is stunning (and so is her brother)! I've never heard of this breed but it sure is beautiful. Congrats!
Feb 15, 2007 allpupsRperfect
OMG, that last pic is a killer. Remy's mom: thanks for sharing the info on Remy's background. I have never heard of this breed before. Stunning AND adorable....what a combo! I'll wager a bet Remy's going to have a fan club of her own before long.....ditto for Timber. 11 biscuits for each of them!
Feb 15, 2007 DogLuvver

Feb 16, 2007 Janni
I hope it's ok to post links here... More information about this breed:
http://www.spj.fi/kk k/kk_en...
Most of the stuff in the net is in Finnish, but for pics you can do a google search with the word Karjalankarhukoira. :)
Feb 16, 2007 steffortega
I absolutely am in love with this dog!!! I think I will have to have one.
Feb 16, 2007 Michael
@Janni

Links are fine as long as they are relevant to the comments. Thanks for the link.
Feb 17, 2007 Julia
Hee hee hee hee!!! Look at the curly tail! When I began scrolling through the pictures I was 24. Now, however, I am 5. I want a lollipop.
Feb 17, 2007 BOBO
What a lovely cute puppy! Are these the same breed of dog that they use to scare the Black Bears out of town in Colorado?
Feb 17, 2007 cat gal
Awwwwwwwwwwwww such a sweet face
Feb 18, 2007 truthy
Gosh, some dogs EXACTLY like this were recently PTS in a city near me cause no one came in to adopt

There seem to be lots of dogs like this to adopt on Petfinder.com if anyone is looking
Feb 19, 2007 Janni
That's just terrible, truthy.
I do like this breed, but I don't want it to become popular as a pet, because it only leads to problems. Carelian bear dogs are strictly hunting dogs and should be kept as such.
Feb 19, 2007 Lydia
Beautiful- I've never heard of this breed. I love the curly tail! 11 biscuits.
Mar 6, 2007 taramh
You are absolutely ADORABLE! I love the pictures of you peeking over your paws.
Mar 9, 2007 laurenrox7
what a gorgeous little pup!
Mar 31, 2007 spager
I am in love!
I have been reading up on the KBD's for some time now and cannot stop obsessing over them - so incredibly cute and intelligent. Quite a handful though I understand - They require a sure hand.
Apr 10, 2007 mrs4j
About a month ago I adopted a puppy from the pound. I was told she was a border collie, which at the time she looked like. As she has gotten older we have been trying to figure out what else she is if she is at all border collie. My dad was watching a tv special the other night and was introduced to the KBD since then I have been trying to research them to find out more. My Reese looks a lot like your Remmy. I found the comment about KBD looking like border collies to be intesting. I now wonder if she is at all border or maybe pure KBD. After finding out more about the KBD I am really glad I have experience raising an aussie.

The seventh picture is gorgeous. Is his friend an adult Karelian Bear Dog? I have honestly never heard if this breed but I think I am in love!
Apr 27, 2007 Bucky
I have known about karaelians since i was 22.....wonderful lovely dog!!!!
Apr 29, 2007 vllybllstar
adorable all the way!
unusual breed but still cute
luv her big bro 2 :)
May 12, 2007 sandi
WOW! what a beauty! Is that her brother Timber in the pics-- he is handsome! I love the pic with her paws crossed-- just too cute.
the 6th pic down is really nice because you get to see the whole adorable puppy. She and Timber are just wonderful together. I just love Remy's ears!
May 16, 2007 chopperchick
What a beautiful breed!!! Yet [u]another[/u] breed I'll have to add to my long list of pups I'd love to have.
May 17, 2007 Langtry
My sister has a KBD named Tippi, and she is very beautiful. Sadly, Tippi was a Puppy Mill Rescue, so please be careful about where you get yours. Go to PetFinder or a reputable breeder for more info: the ones you find in pet stores will likely be the products of a puppy mill.
May 21, 2007 luvmy2kbds
Hi Langtry,

I am very curious to know what state has a puppy mill (or did since you said it was a rescue, hopefully it was shut down) with KBD's.

AWWWWWWWWWWWWW...He is tooooo Cute!

OHMYGOSH! Remy is too cute. 11 biscuts for you.
Jul 15, 2007 sandi
What a beauty Remy is and so is her brother Timber. I love those stand up black ears and that curled tail. I think their coloring and markings are just gorgeous. She sould like a very smart dog. I don't understand the comment that this breed is strickly hunting dogs and should remain as such instead of just a pet-- a lot of working/hunting dogs make great pets as the need to use dogs just for hunting has lessened. She sound like a nice dog (huskies, malamutes, hounds, german shepards all make great pets) Or maybe I'm just a softie and like to think all breeds could have nice loving homes and just be a great friend :?
Aug 20, 2007 Janni
sandi, I agree that all breeds can be great friends, but all of them should be given an opportunity to work, if that is what they were originally bred for. Otherwise you will get an unhappy, frustrated and potentially dangerous dog. You mentioned huskies and German Shepherds, both great breeds but definitely not ment for just sleeping on a couch... "Work" can of course be anything that suits the dog's mentality and physics, but there should be enough of it.
I know where KBD comes from and I am sure it's most happy when it's kept in as original surroundings as possible. It loves spending lots of time outdoors, loves cold (even -30 C which equals -22 F, I believe), loves tracking down elks (mooses in the US) or even brown bears for hours on end, and given all this is also a loving, affectionate family dog.
KBD is a contryside dog, not suitable for cities and in my opinion, not even for warm climates.
I know I sound harsh, but perhaps I'm just a tad protective of a gem of my own country... :/
Aug 23, 2007 luvmy2kbds
Hi Janni,

I coulbn't agree with you more! My KBD's are not pets, while I cannot use them for hunting in the state I live (PA, it is illegal to use dogs to hunt large game) I am planning on starting training for tracking trials and Remy is showing.

I must say in my opinion they are ok with children that they grow up with in the household, but my male is not good with children out side our household. When people ask me if this breed would make a good pet my answer is always no!
Sep 3, 2007 Mummm
Bear and Moose! Wow!
Remy is VERY handsome!
Sep 3, 2007 Janni
luvmy2kbds, I'm sure your two wonderful friends are extremely happy, active and very well cared for! I wish your dogs lots of healthy, happy years with you! :)

Exceptional Karelian and just darling. Viewers don't let that darling little face fool you though. This breed is not for everyone, far from it in fact. This breed requires an advanced and highly dedicated owner and lots of room to roam. They are extremely high energy and love to hunt anything and everything including your neighbor's cat and dog. They were bred to hunt and kill bear and will easily take off on yet another hunting mission if they can.
Jan 13, 2008 cino@horsefeathers
PERHAPS YOU FOLKS OUT THEE CAN HELP PLEASE

We have a bad coyote problem here and need a breed of dog that will buy us time and possibly stand-off a bear or coyote even wolf. It needs to be responsive to it's owners commands and can be called off and work well off-leash as I frequently (well use to until we moved here to NE PA) trailride but have no neighbors with horses so I need to ride alone. I really need a good dog to take with me for protection.

Any suggestions are greatly appreciated.

We have looked into Caucasians, own an aged male Akita so we know they are out, KBGs seem to be as independent working at the Akita or Caucasian. We do plan on hiring a good trainer to work with us and our new dog when the time comes.

Thanks for your ideas
